People Are Hacking Porn Into Super Mario Odyssey

People just can’t leave well enough alone, especially hackers. It looks like some pesky tinkerers are putting some pretty vulgar stuff in a game that shouldn’t have to be dealing with all that: Super Mario Odyssey. The latest entry in the Mario series has been experiencing a series of attacks from hackers forcing porn into the game by way of their profile images.

Thanks to a new homebrew tool, the game will now let folks post “indecent content,” according to the Reddit thread the issue was originally discussed on, into the game. “It seems hackers have found a way to insert indecent content into our children’s games,” the thread stated. “It seems to be an issue with users’ profile pictures. The picture was changed several times over the course of my time patrolling, each picture featuring straight-up porn and other types of pornographic content. There are multiple of these balloons all being made by the same user. This is obviously intentional, and made to upset children.”

Nintendo doesn’t currently have a way for users to report certain images like this right now, but there’s such a strict set of rules involved that it’s typically not a requirement to need to do such a thing. Now, because people can’t just leave things alone, we could see this functionality removed in the future if there isn’t an easy fix, and all thanks to folks who had to get their jollies by putting porn into their profile images. Come on, it’s not even that funny.

Nintendo has not commented on the situation, nor acknowledged it as a problem, but we’ll keep an eye out on the situation and report on any possible changes that could be coming to the game in the future as a result of the hackers’ actions. We’ll also make sure to do it without showing you said porn from above, because…well, obviously. Keep an eye out for your kids if they’re playing online!
